The vestry is the governing body of the parish in the Episcopal Church. The number of members, organization, and the term of office varies from parish to parish and are normally defined in the parish bylaws. Vestry members are usually elected at the annual parish meeting.
The presiding officer of the vestry is the rector. In addition, most parishes have two wardens, both lay members of the congregation. As the top lay leader, the senior warden works directly with the rector in managing all areas of parish affairs. The junior warden is the senior warden’s deputy and often has responsibility for church property and buildings. A treasurer and a secretary or clerk may be also be chosen by the vestry to oversee its financial and administrative functions.
The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation, to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances. All Saints Vestry meets on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Library.
